LinOTP documentation

Congratulations on your choice!

LSE LinOTP is a solution for authenticating with one time passwords. The runtime components of LSE LinOTP are available as source code, which gives you the possibility, to make your own adaption or to conduct code reviews on the software. LSE LinOTP is originally based on GNU/Linux but as it is written in Python, it might also run on other operating systems.

LSE LinOTP is lean and very gentle on resources. It is scalable from small installations up to world-spanning, redundant enterprise installations.

This manual is divided into 5 main parts.

  1. The LinOTP Management Guide describes the management of users, realms and tokens.
  2. The LinOTP Installation Guide explains how to install LinOTP on different operating systems.
  3. The LinOTP User Guide shows the user how to use the self service portal.
  4. The LinOTP Appliance Manual deals with the LinOTP Appliance. No matter if you are using the hardware appliance or the virtual appliance, here you can find how to set up and configure the appliance.
  5. If you plan to adapt or extend LinOTP you can develop your own modules. How to do this is described in LinOTP Module Development Guide.
